They may not have gone on to be Oscar-winners, but they all look pretty good.

All are still working in Hollywood, and for the most part they have stayed out of the tabloids. What else do you want subby?

At least no one got raped in jail.

Has Ally Sheedy's forehead been tested for steroids?
 
2013-11-19 08:26:13 AM
I don't care what Subby things. Anthony Michael Hall was great in "The Dead Zone" and hilarious in "Awkward".
 
2013-11-19 08:27:49 AM
Everyone always raved about Molly but I always thought Ally was the hotter one.  The scene where she draws the covered bridge and then uses her dandruff to make it snow is awesome.

It's a great message that movie sends, change who you are and how you look so the popular boy will like you.

Never seen the movie and I have never understood the hype. Not trolling here, but what makes this movie so important, and I'm at the age where I've probably should have seen this movie 10 times.
 
2013-11-19 08:42:33 AM
It's not as if they all wound up like Cory Haim. They all have had decent careers in a pretty fun business. Yeah I know that white knighting them will not get me a threesome with Molly and Ally (something I have already had in my mind several times as a youth), but the headline is pure troll.

Trying, and failing, to see subby's point. (I'd still like Ally and Molly bathed and sent to my tent. At the same time, even.)

Emilio Estevez REALLY looks like his dad. Well, the way his dad used to look.

"[Molly Ringwald] played the rich princess role of Claire Standish before, in the 90s, controversially turning down the female lead roles in  Pretty Woman and  Ghost. "

Now there's a career that could have gone differently.

Well - except for the sexual assault by the star athlete. In that case the victims family would have been hounded out of town by people angry with him for ruining the schools name by having the temerity to report it.

What sexual assault would that be? Bender/Judd Nelson was the one under Claire/Molly Ringwald's desk. The athlete (Estevez) was sitting next to her.

"not a lot of good..."?
really?
side-by-side comparisons of actors and themselves 28 years younger...they all aged...some seem to have aged about 28 years, some seem to have aged slightly less...none are disfigured from horrid plastic surgeries...as far as i know none of them have fallen on hard times in the last 28 years...what's the "not a lot of good"?

I think his point was "these days, it would be considered sexual assault at our extremely uptight zero policy schools."

If they should decide re do The West Wing, Emillio would make a fair President Bartlett. He looks more like his dad every year.

it reflected white kids with problems pretty accurately, and still feels pretty realistic.

the problem with watching it now is what others have said - most of the shiat the kids were in detention for then would get you expelled\arrested\jailed these days.  One kid sexually assaulted another (the tape incident).  One brought a weapon to school.  The movie has no resonance any longer - and add that to the fact that the film is so farking WHITEWASHED that it is ridiculous.

Also - good looking, well dressed Bender being portrayed as the tough hood just seems so damned far-fetched these days.

in every school in America?  Come on.  Those darkies sure went to school SOMEWHERE in the 80's.

In the film, even the damn JANITOR was white.  I live in bumfark AL, graduated high school in 1990 at a predominately white high school in a predominantly white area in collard field, AL and even our janitor was a black fella.

I just watched it with someone who had never seen it before. She's thirty, so I can see how she missed the boat. She really liked it.
I read a quote recently that was so true. If that movie took place today, the kids would have their noses stuck in their Iphones and never would have talked to eachother.
 
2013-11-19 11:08:26 AM
It's a great movie for its time, but it doesn't hold up well in the modern high school era. I mean, Brian brought a flair gun to school to kill himself and the school responds by having him serve one Saturday school detention? Nowadays, he'd be (rightly) put in a psychiatric hold for a while until they're sure he's no longer a threat to himself and/or others.

DMZ DEATH: I read a quote recently that was so true. If that movie took place today, the kids would have their noses stuck in their Iphones and never would have talked to each other.


Eh, the movie was never realistic anyway. I like the movie, but I never thought for one second a real Saturday school detention would play out that way.

Where I grew up (graduated in 1990 as well), the only black guys in town were the 3 playing basketball for the local Junior College. About the only minorities in the high school was one year we had a Japanese foreign exchange student, there was one Native American and one family (3-4 kids) whose mother was Thai. That's it.

I just checked the high school website where most of the staff has a picture. Still as white as white can be as it was when I was in school.

Sorry, you don't know white bread, Bumfark sir. I know white bread, Bumfark.

I grew up in a town that bears the same name as a neighboring city that is predominantly Black. However, in the town where I attended high school, not a lot of African Americans were around at the time. They went to the school on the other side of the river.

In my high school, which was rather large, we had maybe a dozen Black students, and they were all from upper middle-class Black families. Our varsity football team had only two Black guys on it, and yes, we got our asses kicked when we played against the city high school, which had ZERO white guys on their team.

This was the 80s, and you could definitely draw a line in most large towns/cities between the Black part of town, and the White part of town.

My high school had more Indian, Asian, and Arab kids in it than Black kids. Not many  more, but if I recall correctly, an Indian girl was valedictorian. We had some diversity, but we really didn't have a lot of Black kids in our school at the time.

There was still the shadow of segregation hanging over our schools in those days. Yes, integration was in full effect, but people weren't moving out of the city to live in the burbs, and people in the burbs weren't exactly rushing across the bridge to the city, either.

much like seinfeld would've played out much differently with cell phones. elaine did have a cell in the later years, but it was still an era where making a cellphone call was improper ettiquette for important calls.
